The Making of a Hard Rock Miner by Stephen M. Voynick
The Making of a Hardrock Miner is about mining in the American West. It deals not with geology, ore reserves, profit-and-loss statements, or production, but with the human element of underground mining.
As a first-person account of work in a Colorado molybdenum mine, two Wyoming uranium mines, and an Arizona copper mine, this book is a colorful statement of the Wests hardrock mining culture. It provides a rare glimpse of miners and, in their own unique vernacular, tells of their attitudes, values, and camaraderie, along with the humor that helps them to cope with dark, dangerous underground shifts.
Since it was first released in 1978, The Making of a Hardrock Miner has enjoyed enduring popularity among both the general public and those in the mining industry. It is a fast-paced, eminently readable book that has also served as a college-level resource providing personal insight into underground mining safety and operations. (5.5" x 8.5" 224 pages)
